Game to Start Immediately After the
; Aviation Affair Is Kvw.
Tomorrow afternoon at the Lincoln
grounds Immediately after the avia
tion attraction the Union team will
meet La Grande for the last of the
first 12 games of the schedule and as
this last round of the summer series
approaches, fans are settling down to
a hair-raising finish. Elgin, climbing
rapidly during the past month, has at
tained a point in the percentage table
where it would be somewhat disas
trous f or L& Jfirande to lose a game,
uu ouiy to ttny oirner -team, out to
Elgin as well. Elgin plays at Baker
tomorrow and unless the strengthen
ed Infield can turn the tide there
seems little likelihood of Elgin losing.
Then, too, thier Is always that pos
sibility of Union turning the trick and
defeating La Grande, a contingency
not at all desirable at the present
writing. Without being pessimistic,
it can truthfully be said that of the
extremis Importance attached to the
While Jhere seems to be some man
ner or dispute as to how the deputy
game warden got Caddie Crawford,
Chas. Gray, Jessie Breashear3, Rubo
Breashears, Herman Breashearg and

for violating the fishing laws, the fact
remains just the same that if these
men are guilty they should be pun
ished. There are certain laws in 1
flshdom that are absolutely necessary!
for the welfare of the .finny tribe andi
only something akin to criminals will
break them. In the Elgin Instance,
the fishermen overlooked the law that
fishing after sundown 1b illegal. This
law can hardly be classed in such a
category that to break it signifies the
aforet mentioned criminality. Get
some of the grab hook artists, Mr.
Deputy thiey are your meat.
With a strengthened Infield, the Ba

The La Grande Elks are trying to
arrange a game with the Baker El'sa
at Bak.T a week from tomorrow. TliU
Is the "steenth time thl3 game has been
under negotiations and as It Is believ
ed the La Grande pennant chasers la
the Eastern Oregon league will play
at Bak;r that day ,lt planned to
combine the expense of both trips inta
one excursion train. '
' This is how the Recorder handles
the game here July 4th:
In the Fourth of July exhibition
games Elgin lost in the morning to
La Grande at La Grande, and won
in the afternoon from Baker City at
Haines. The defeat in the mornln?
was caused by the absence of some of
our regular players and the presence 17
of the umpire, together with numerous
fat errors In the field and perfect field
ing by aL Grande. Aubln was batted
freely but the La Grande gardeners
took care of everything that camo
within hailing distance,
The ball game Sunday between our
boys and the Wallowa boys on the
opponents' diamond proved very dis
astrous to the local ag they were de
feated by a scone of 12 to 2. The trip
from Cove to Wallowa la a long one
and should never be attempted by a
ball team when they expsct to make
the trip in the' morning and play in
the afternoon. for when they arrive on
tne new tney are in no connmon to
play hall as the score Indicated. Per
haps we can return the score when
they play on the home diamond.

In My Home
is a Macey Book Cabinet
i To let one' oi the new Macey Book Cabinet in your home is
, to set before your children an example of such good taste that '
throughout all the day of their lives they will feel its lefininff
- influence. .,..".. ,i.
Macey Book Cabinets are the first sectional bookcases ever
, v built after the designs of the old masters. These old masters,
; Sheraton, Chippendale, Robert Adam and Fra Junipero, were
as great in Furniture as Shakespeare in Literature, as Mozart in
Music, as Michael Angelo in Painting. ,
, - The new Macey Book Cabinets are the only sectional book
cases that can be added to, both upward and sideways, and still
not look like sectional bookcases, but like heirlooms of furniture.
' Can be taken from or rearranged without destroying their beauty
So artful is the cabinet work that dealers frequently have to
' take them apart to convince customers that they are sectional. '
Macey old master designs harmonize with any furniture you
: now have, and are made in such variety of popular prices, sixes,
' woods and finishes, that they fit any requirement of space or purse,
Macey Sectional Book Cabinets are built under the direction
of Mr. O. H. L. Wernicke, the father of sectional bookcases and
President of The Macey Company. Mr. Wernicke's name is
still used in the corporate title of a competing firm, with which
ha has long since had no connection.
-If you wish to give your Lome and your childrea.the most in
spiring influence you ever gave them, you will go to a furniture
store and see these new Macey Book Cabinets before you forget it
